Twelve years after it was constituted, the Nanavati Commission of Enquiry probing the 2002 post-Godhra riots submitted its final report to Chief Minister Anandiben Patel here on Tuesday.
Justice Nanavati and Commission member Justice Akshay Mehta met Ms. Patel at her residence and handed over the report. Justice Nanavati told PTI that the report was over 2,000 pages, but did not divulge anything further.
“The report will be forwarded to the Home department. The department will review it and place the report before the Assembly,” K. Kailashnathan, Chief Principal Secretary to the Chief Minister told The Hindu.
The Commission’s term expired on October 31 after 24 extensions. It submitted the first part of its report related to the Sabarmati Express in 2008, which said that the train burning was a “planned conspiracy.” The same year, after the death of Justice K.G. Shah, retired HC Justice Akshay Mehta was appointed to the Commission.
